LAHORE: Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said on Friday that there are no signs of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s Chairman Imran Khan becoming a prime minister of the country in the near future.
The provincial law minister was speaking to media outside the Punjab Assembly.
In 2018, the PTI chief’s political career would end, said Sanaullah, adding that Imran would not be able to find shortcuts to the prime ministership.
“His (Imran’s) political funeral has been held and will be buried after the Joint Investigation Team’s probe,” said the law minister.
Sanaullah said that all the institutions should act in coordination, keeping the aspect of national security in mind.
While referring to the International Court of Justice’s verdict on Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav, he said that it is the government’s prerogative to accept the verdict, adding that a decision would be reached based on national interest when the time comes.
The ICJ had ordered Pakistan on Thursday to halt the execution of Jadhav until a final decision in the proceedings. "Pakistan shall take all measures at its disposal to ensure that Jadhav is not executed pending the final decision in these proceedings," ordered Judge Ronny Abraham, president of the court, as he announced the decision.
